Cocoteeth are coconut shell pieces naturally bleached and slivered into fine tooth-shaped beads. Kanju’s playful Cocoteeth Round Chandelier features strands of Cocoteeth and wooden seed beads suspended from concentric welded steel hoops. The design’s simplicity calls attention to the gently varied curvature and natural texture of each Cocotooth element, lending a sense of effortlessness and relaxed play.
The word kanju translates to “creativity born of struggle” or “making more with less.” Nothing could be truer of the exquisite pieces and talented artisans with whom kanju works across the African continent.
